I booked a room at the Lodge in May for our vacation in July. The room rate was $256 and my confirmation letter reflected this. Just prior to departure for our vacation I happened to visit their web site again and noticed that the rate had increased to $271. It is mentioned in the confirmation letter that "rates are subject to change with the prior approval of the National Park Service." So, upon arrival at the Lodge, I inquired about my room rate and was told that it indeed was now $271! I asked why this was not disclosed to me when it occurred. The person at the desk just pointed out the disclaimer on my confirmation letter and didn't have an explanation. When all taxes and fees were added, my original room rate went from $256 per night to $295! While our room was comfortable and clean with a beautiful view, I find the their policy of raising rates on existing reservations...without notification...to be very underhanded. There are NO other lodging options on Isle Royal and they know it!
